This morning Adrian and I decided to enjoy the beautiful day and go for a hike. We are blessed by the location of our apartment; as our backyard just so happens to be a mountain. I usually go to yoga every morning, but this weekend I got stung by a bee and my face is quite unsightly and swollen (if you needs a visual, think quasimodo!). As a result, I was in no mood to show off my hideous face in public. So I put on my sunglasses (to cover the swollenness) and we trekked up the mountain.
As some of you know, I am no fan of running, but hiking proved to be a good alternative. That mountain kicked my butt and I was sweating up a storm. When we reached ground level my legs were quite shakey and in need of a good stretch.
This part of the path, in this shot, is actually quite flat, but the majority of the hike was a pretty steep climb.
Once we made it to one of the peaks at the top, I was in need of a little rest and a snack. I slurped some leftover GM from my breakfast while enjoying the lovely view.
It’s always nice to have a good buddy to hike with to encourage you along the way! Adrian always proves to be a good support!
Hopefully my face will be back to normal tomorrow so that I will be able to make it to yoga and work. I did not think I could face hundreds of little curious Korean students questioning me about my strange appearance.
